11
12 Fixed /sbin/rc-envupdate.sh to only use the $KDEDIR of the highest

14
15 5 May 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
16

19
20 28 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
21
22 Update /etc/rc.conf to be more clear and state that you should
23 remove consolefont from startup if you do not use it. Should
24 resolve bug #2174.
25
26 26 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> passwd, group :

34 noting this.
35
36 24 April 2002; Donny Davies <woodchip@gentoo.org> rc.conf :
37
38 Remove NFSSERVER from rc.conf since it's now covered in /etc/conf.d/nfs

40 really old, leftover junk like the non-supported stuff from rc5.
41 Closes #1754.
42
43 23 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:

49
50 21 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
51

55 Implement the status commandline argument. Updated /sbin/runscript.sh
56 and /sbin/rc-help.sh for this.
57
58 Fix /sbin/depscan.sh to honour NEED and USE overriding BEFORE
59 and AFTER.
60
61 12 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:

69 Thanks to Väinö Järvelä for this fix.
70
71 Update /etc/profile to also set the PS? variables if $SHELL
72 is set to /bin/sh. This should make prompt colours in
73 bootstrap work again.
74
75 Move LVM stuff to checkfs to ensure that they get fscked.
76 This resolves bug #1552.
77
78* rc-scripts 1.3.3 (5 April 2002)

80 5 April 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:

97 Resolve bug #1274. Updated /etc/init.d/hostname and /etc/init.d/bootmisc
98 for this.
99
100 With the "before" and "after" stuff, recursion levels was getting too high,
101 and with some cases, things just plain did not work as it should. Reworked
102 things to to lower the levels of recursion and get the order right. Updated
103 /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for this.
104
105 Fixed a problem in /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/runscript.sh where
106 ${svcdir}/softlevel did not always exist, but runscript.sh tried to open it.
107
108 Enhance --quiet support. Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh for this.
109
110 Remove /etc/pwdb.conf, as pwdb already install a copy of this.
111
112 Remove /etc/pam.d/{rexec,rlogin,rsh} as pam already install this.
113
114 Added $INPUTRC to /etc/profile, since too many people keep on bugging me,
115 and it seems it has fallen now to my discression.
116
117* rc-scripts 1.3.1 (23 Mar 2002)
118
119 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: init.d/net.eth0: fix for
120 DHCP lease release from Jim Nutt.
121
122 23 March 2002; Daniel Robbins <drobbins@gentoo.org>: rolling a new release
123 since there are a lot of important bug fixes in here that are needed.
124
125 23 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
126
127 Resolve bug #1292.
128
129 Remove the extra 'depmod -a' in /etc/init.d/modules, thanks to
130 Spidler.
131
132 21 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
133
134 Update /sbin/rc to fix a 'cat mounts' instead of the correct
135 version, 'cat /proc/mounts'.
136
137 19 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
138
139 Add initial support for the --quiet flag that suppress output.
140
141 18 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
142
143 Remove the 'try' from 'try /etc/init.d/depscan.sh' in /sbin/rc
144 as not all errors by depscan.sh is critical. It should be
145 reworked to do better error handeling.
146
147 14 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
148
149 Fix the GID and UID of nobody and nogroup in /etc/passwd and
150 /etc/group to match those of Debian, FBSD and others. Thanks
151 to those who reported it, and Woodchip for looking up the
152 proper values.
153
154 Update /etc/init.d/net.eth0 to properly down DHCP interfaces.
155 This resolves bug #1150, thanks to Paul Fleischer.
156
157 11 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
158
159 Updated /etc/init.d/functions.sh not to use /usr/bin/basename,
160 as some users have /usr on seperate partition which is not
161 mounted when depscan.sh is run the first time.
162
163 Updated the checking for more than one service providing the
164 same virtual function in /etc/init.d/depscan.sh. It should
165 be working now, and this also fix a problem that when there is no
166 service providing a virtual, counter was used uninitialized.
167
168* rc-scripts 1.3.0 (10 March 2002)
169
170 10 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: Resolved

174
175 Resolved bug #990; updated /etc/init.d/net.eth0, /etc/init.d/netmount
176 and /etc/init.d/localmount for this.
177
178 Lots of form/syntax cleanups, most things should be more
179 consistant now. Fixed fail detection/return values of lots of
180 scripts.
181
182 Lots of cleanup/fixes in the three main scripts behind our
183 rc-system, /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/depscan.sh, /etc/init.d/runscript.sh
184
185 Fix a bug regarding a invalid $PATH for portage if /etc/init.d/functions.sh
186 is sourced in a ebuild.
187
188 Fix a bug that our rc-script wrapper introduced: Global variables
189 in scripts no longer worked. Updated /etc/init.d/runscript.sh for
190 this.
191
192 Implemented more error checking for the main startup code in /sbin/rc.
193 Also fixed try() for mounting /proc (maybe all mount commands).
194 The function worked fine in a simulated test, but in real life failed
195 to detect a error when mounting /proc (remember to thank Grant for
196 his UserMode ebuilds, and Guide).
197
198* rc-scripts 1.2.9 (6 March 2002)
199
200 6 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: General form
201 updates and some piping fixes.
202
203 Updated /etc/inittab, /etc/init.d/xdm and /etc/X11/startDM.sh

205 if xdm was not in the default runlevel.
206
207* rc-scripts 1.2.8 (4 March 2002)
208
209 4 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: add /etc/init.d/xdm,
210 /etc/X11/startDM.sh and updated /etc/inittab to fix the "dead key"
211 problem we had with xdm/gdm/kdm. We should move them to the
212 xfree ebuild later on when things settles down.
213
214 Added some sanity checks to /sbin/rc, /etc/init.d/runscripts.sh.
215
216 Added a basic $PATH to /etc/init.d/functions.sh to fix a problem
217 where we had a invalid $PATH on boot in some cases.
218
219 Updated /etc/init.d/keymap and /etc/init.d/consolefont to work with
220 the new sys-apps/kbd package.
221

15 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should 234 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to touch the actual files less. This should
16 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines. 235 speedup dependancy caching a lot, especially on slow machines.
236
237 Updated /etc/passwd to have users with no shell defined, use /bin/false
238 for security.
239
240 Update /etc/fstab to mention /dev/shm since we dont mount it anymore.
17 241
18 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for 242 1 March 2002; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>: added a wrapper for
